Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free territory of Whallhall is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Direct Democracy with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.892 billion existances enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vallia. The average income tax rate is 92.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient existance economy, worth a remarkable 1,494 trillion Loves a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 115,904 Loves, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

There is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, the nation has nearly as many history museums as existances, cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, and counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Whallhall's national animal is the existance, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Whallhall is ranked 168,589th in the world and 71st in Nordic Lands for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 25.82 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
